Snowbasin

I was just there for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it may be my new favorite mountain.
Depending on the conditions, and if you are willing to hike about 15 minutes, I would suggest hitting Middle Bowl Cirque; it is about 10-15 minute hike off of Strawberry. Another option is to hike off of the Allen Peak Tram and cruise along the boundry line. Neither is too difficult and well worth it.
We did both of those and they were the best turns of the day. However, the rest of the mountain is incredible.
Have fun!

Few good runs here; Moose Mound/Dans/Sweet Revenge. When you get bored of that head over to Porcupine chair lift, another mid mountain lift. Lots of hidden powder with trees/bowls in Porcupine. If you're advance/expert you'll love John Paul area, lots of steeps/bowls. Check out Mt Allen Tram to run the Men's/Womans downhill from the 2002 Olympics.

Basically avoid the bottom of the mountain and ride the mid mountain chair lifts, never a line.

Have lunch at the top of John Pauls Lodge (damn good chili) or bottom of Strawberry gondola (chili verde tacos sometimes)

FYI - got 12 inches yesterday (2/27) supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow.
That sounds like some solid advice right there.

Snowbasin UT info and tips

Hey guys, headed to Snowbasin next week with it being our first trip to Utah. Just wondering if anyone has any good information or tips regarding trails, lifts, overall mountain experience, and what should be hit and or avoided. Would love to get into to some of the bowls and hopefully with the storms rolling through will provide some nice powder. Did a search and did not find much info on Snowbasin. Thanks.
